Yeah, Stipe hasn't written a good political song since the 80's. Ignoreland is what really drags Automatic down from masterpiece status for me. Awful lyrics, awful music.

I agree - Ignoreland doesn't fit with the rest of the album. Its sound would have fit better on Monster.

It would have fit better on their tape machine's erase head.

The lyrics are way too overt; compared to the poetic subtlety of something like Welcome to the Occupation or Exhuming McCarthy (among others) they're flat-out embarrassing.

Because cori got me on an R.E.M. kick, can I just say that Begin the Begin, These Days and I Believe got me so energized on the treadmill yesterday that I almost fell off.

I want the new R.E.M. record to be really really good.

From Indie 103.1 in LA:

R.E.M. is performing live and we are broadcasting it. In this sixty-minute, live radio special, R.E.M. will exclusively debut select songs from their new release, Accelerate. Join host Jody Denberg along with Michael Stipe, Peter Buck and Mike Mills as they broadcast live from Austin City Limits on Thursday, March 13 at 7PM Pacific. The show will conclude with an exclusive live performance from the band. It's all right after the rebroadcast of Jonesy's Jukebox.

I believe this "listening party" is happening a week before the Facebook one. You can stream the channel online if you're not in LA.

^ I'm totally staying up for it. I think the R.E.M. portion of the webcast starts in about a half hour. I'm geeked. It'll be just like being at the actual concert!

Except I'll be sitting in my computer chair eating leftover pizza.

Still, I'm pumped. Hoping for a badass set. I wonder how different it will be to the Langerado setlist
